The new seafood-driven eatery celebrates its official grand opening on Friday, June 3 out of the space formerly occupied by MacDinton’s Irish Pub, which unexpectedly closed in early April.
Alongside a wide variety of seafood to choose from, are hearty entrees like its barbecue chicken flatbread, prosciutto and manchego croquetas, smashed burgers and pulled pork sandwiches, as a recent Tampa Bay Times article details.
The folks behind Cap’s also run the newly-opened Coffee Grounds, the boozy cafe next door. The popular Treasure Island coffee shop recently moved to downtown St. Pete’s 200 block, just before its seafood counterpart's soft opening earlier this month.
Coffee Grounds boasts beachy craft cocktails like the Sunset Smash with vodka, berry kombucha and lemon and its Island Colada with Malibu rum, pineapple and coconut milk. In addition to coffee and cocktails, this cafe also sells a variety of pastries and other small bites, if you don't have the appetite for a full dinner at Cap's.
Cap’s is a joint venture from Jannus Live owner Jeff Knight and local commercial real estate agent Jon LaBudde, who is also a partner in various St. Pete restaurants like Big Catch at Salt Creek and Buya Ramen, according to St. Pete Catalyst.
If the First Friday madness isn’t your scene, you can visit Cap’s from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, and 5 p.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday, according to ILovetheBurg.
There’s no website or social media pages for Cap’s just yet, but its sibling cafe Coffee Grounds posts updates about the seafood restaurant, and can be found at @coffeegroundscafe on Facebook.
